High School: St. Augustine High School
College: Notre Dame University
Michael’s compassion for others is overwhelming. It was the undeniable need to care for others that prompted Michael to take on the major problem of homelessness head-on. With the same resolve and logical clear-headedness that allowed him to lead his classmates as ASB president, Michael founded a 501c(3) non-profit organization that allows individuals to invest in their community by purchasing nutritionally-and practically-filled red bags to distribute to the homeless. His passion surpasses one person’s service; it challenges the community to serve one another. The University of Notre Dame community bond will strengthen through Michael’s presence.
